Free dental check-ups and a discount
for dental cleaning during August *

August is Pet Dental Health Month

During August, all vets are raising awareness of dental and oral disease in animals.
We’re recommending action to examine, prevent and if necessary treat dental and oral disease.
Pet Dental Health Month is supported by the Australian Veterinarian Association (AVA).

Gum disease

Dental and oral disease includes gum disease (periodontitis).
Gum disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats.
About 80% of dogs and cats have gum disease by 3 years of age.
It’s caused by accumulated material (plaque and calculus) and bacteria on the teeth.
Pets can suffer pain, discomfort and a range of other clinical problems, which can go undetected for years.
The more common signs are:

  • bad breath
  • inflamed gums
  • poor appetite or picky eating
  • broken teeth

Also, there can be infections other areas of the body, including in the kidney, heart and liver.

Annual dental check-ups

Annual dental check-ups and ongoing dental care are essential to help prevent and treat these problems.
We don’t want our pets to be in any pain or discomfort.

Have a free dental check-up and a teeth clean for your pet at a discount in August.
Make an appointment on 96391200.

* Please note: If tooth extractions are required, these will cost extra, depending on the type of tooth.
  This special offer is available during August.

Stray dogs and cats

Scanning for a microchip

When people find stray dogs or cats, they often bring them to a vet to see if they have a microchip.

As a public service, our vet hospital can scan a stray animal for a microchip.

If a microchip is found, then we can look up the owner's details on the database.

But if there is no microchip, or the owner's details are out-of-date, then we cannot keep the animal at our vet hospital.

Vet hospitals are not permitted by law to hold uninjured stray animals.

Please note that the finder of an uninjured stray animal is legally responsible for them.

According to the Companion Animals Act, the finder of a stray animal must take them to an official animal holding facility, such as the pound, or return them to the owner (if known), as soon as practicable.

Scans for uninjured strays can be done Monday to Friday 9.00am to 6.00pm, or Saturday 9.00am to 4.00pm, excluding public holidays.

Baiting Program - Hills Shire Council - June 2018

The Hill's Council is running a Rabbit Baiting program from 14 May to 14 June 2018.

Several reserves throughout The Hills have been targeted and are closed.

The baiting is being done to reduce the numbers of feral European Rabbits. The bait used is a poison called Pindone, which is lethal to dogs and cats and other animals. Contact the vet immediately if you believe your pet animal may have been in contact with a bait.

All reserves that are baited are signposted during the baiting program. Once the baiting program is completed, the signs will be removed.

The reserves closed for Pindone baiting until 14 June 2018 are:

Bella Vista Farm Park, Bella Vista
Fred Caterson Reserve, Castle Hill
Castle Hill Cemetery, Castle Hill
Lots 1021 & 1023, Grey Gum Estate, Kellyville
Holland Road Reserve, Kenthurst
